ProsAbility to move between disciplines and learn/experience new skills. American Greetings does not limit you to your current discipline but will allow operations to move into finance, finance into sales etc.

ConsConstant work force reduction eliminating career opportunities. Greeting Cards is a mature industry requiring the company to closely monitor costs and reduce. Most of those reductions come though head count reduction which has reached a level it has almost the best part of the company, the ability to move between jobs and gain experience.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Either accept that you will always be… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
